    I'm not sure what it says about a show that the biggest discussion topic is about the "hard drives".

    Stealing entire computer:

    - Yank out cables
    - pick up
    - walk away.

    - Plug into your own monitor keyboard and mouse at your place later

    Stealing hard drive:

    - Hope case is secured by thumb screws and doesn't require tools to open
    - pop off front panel if it's in the way of removing drive
    - unplug cables from hard drive
    - hope hard drive is not mounted with screws and remove it
    - hope computer only has one hard drive and not multiple in possible RAID array (hope you have your own RAID controller if it is)
    - walk away with your valuable data that's no longer inside the protective case you could have just walked off with.

    - If single drive only (unlikely if this is important data) install as slave in your own PC. If in likely RAID array, dig up controller card, configure, and install drives in your own spare PC.

    The only possible advantage to removing a hard drive alone is if you'll be observed walking out of the building and need to hide what you're taking with you which was not the case here.

    The most compelling part of the show was the goofs. :p

    The only thing that gives me any hope on this series is the fact that Gary Scott Thompson will be the showrunner.
    Which will probably mean a lot of "turn off your brain and watch the HD T&A".

    At least they can get more mileage out of the Montecito sets.

    2009, eh?

    I guess they'll have plenty of time to punch up the scripts.

    I watched it a couple of weeks ago. It wasn't too bad.

    If they really want to make it good, they need to have more lame cover versions of popular songs playing in the background like the original. :)

    I'm not sure but I think that the original broadcast versions used the original songs.
    But rights issues forced them to replace them with sound alikes for syndication and DVD.

    This is the thread for the TV movie, not the series. It seems people are posting their thoughts in this thread instead.
